I'm sorry, I don't really understand your question. Are you wanting to travel domestically in the US, using your passport as your only form of ID? – Mark Mayo Aug 15 '13 at 1:17
Yes, because i have immigration courts but i wanna know if i can travel like visit another state without me having some type US IDs or a driver license the passport i have right now is from my country though? I want to know if i can still travel within the US only using my passport as my only ID? – Alex Aug 15 '13 at 1:22

For travel in the US (which I did in April) you only need your passport as a form of ID. This is for the immigration process (you'll need a visa, most likely, in your passport), and for all internal flights as well.

It is possible to fly internally without a passport as a foreigner, as an English friend did in April as well, but it was VERY difficult, as every security person expects you to have your passport available to travel with.

@MarkMayo: What did your friend use in terms of ID? – Jonas Aug 16 '13 at 7:03
@Jonas he had a UK driver's license and his printed tickets, and is a salesman ;) – Mark Mayo Aug 16 '13 at 7:07
"but it was VERY difficult" No it isn't. You just need an accepted form of ID. The problem with your friend was that he did not have any accepted form of ID besides his passport. Foreign driver's license is not an accepted form of ID for the TSA ( However, if he had a U.S. driver's license or state ID, or green card, he would not need a passport. – user102008 Aug 17 '13 at 0:48
@MarkMayo: yes, I was talking about foreigners. You don't need to be a U.S. citizen to get a driver's license or state ID. You just need to be in the U.S. for a while. – user102008 Aug 17 '13 at 0:57
